the scoop on scoopers

Post by davemerrill »

Back in 2007 one of the earliest posts I wrote at Let's Anime was about Scoopers, the 1987 OVA written & character designed by Monkey Punch. That post was old and busted so I re-wrote it and now it's a new Let's Anime post!

warning, this OVA contains extremely cheesy 1980s graphics!

I recently watched Scoopers on youtube!

I really liked the designs. The character artwork was great. I just wish I could get a higher quality video source.

There were definitely some cheesy moments that made me laugh out loud. But I live for unintentionally funny stuff like that in 80s movies.

Overall it was enjoyable.

I do really like those character designs, you can see Monkey Punch in there, but it's going in a direction different from all the versions of Lupin III that were out there, even at the time. Glad something like this is up where everybody can see it.
